Doing This With Your Hands Makes People Not Trust You, Experts Say
Especially with face masks covering our mouths these days, body language is a huge factor in how we come across. Whether you’re sitting straight up, slouched over, or fidgeting with your pen, people are quick to make judgements based on the little things you do. In fact, experts say that making one common gesture with your hands makes people less likely to trust you. Read on to find out what it is, and for more on why people may be doubting you.
Putting your hands in your pockets makes people not trust you.
If you want to come off as inviting and trustworthy, keep your hands where people can see them, says Susan Trombetti, a relationship expert and CEO of Exclusive Matchmaking. “When people keep their hands in their pockets, it appears they are hiding something. And someone is more likely to be lying because they are hiding their hands,” she explains. Concealing your hands comes across as more controlled, which can be interpreted as “deceitful and untrustworthy,” she notes. “People generally consider individuals with their hands in their pockets to be insecure,” explains Girish Shukla, a mental health and psychology expert.
Keeping open body language makes you seem more trustworthy.
According to Trombetti, someone who is telling the truth—or at least, seems to be—is more likely to keep their hands open and palms up. When your hands are visible, “the physical openness of your body language invites trust,” says Lauren Levy, a sales expert who teaches people in the industry how to appear trustworthy.
“Keeping open hands while talking can give others the idea that you can be trusted and that you know what you are talking about,” Shukla says. “Whenever you expose your palms it means that you are not hiding anything.”

Idris Elba, Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer and Anna Kendrick are just some of the big stars with new films hitting Netflix next month.
At the beginning of the month, Elba saddles up for Concrete Cowboy, which Netflix acquired after the movie premiered at last year’s Toronto Film Festival. A week later, Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer join forces as crime-fighting superheroes in Thunder Force.
Later in the month, Anna Kendrick, Daniel Dae Kim and Toni Collette deal with an unexpected passenger on a trip to space in Stowaway.
The month ends with the voices of Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride and Maya Rudolph as ordinary family members who embark on a road trip and end up trying to save humanity from a robot uprising in the animated The Mitchells vs. The Machines, produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse, The Lego Movie). The film, previously titled Connected, was sold by Sony Pictures to Netflix in January.
Other noteworthy movies hitting Netflix in April include Legally Blonde, Friends With Benefits, Insidious, The Pianist, The Time Traveler’s Wife, Yes Man, The Zookeeper’s Wife, Miss Sloane and August: Osage County.
On the TV side, Netflix is premiering Shadow and Bone, based on Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Grishaverse novels, on April 23 as well as the third installment of Family Reunion and the Jamie Foxx-starrer Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! earlier in the month. The streamer is also adding new seasons of reality series The Circle, The Wedding Coach and the Gaten Matarazzo-hosted Prank Encounters.
Other TV shows being added to Netflix include the third season of PJ Masks and the first (and only) season of ABC’s The Baker and the Beauty.
